Arequipa is a beautiful city of about 1 million people. It is known as "The White City", because of the distinct white volcanic rock called sillar that was used to build Arequipa’s historical town. The city is very beautiful and is surrounded by Misti, Piccu Piccu and Chanchani volcanoes. The weather is very sunny and pleasant all year-round. The altitude is high, over 2,328 metres. The climate is dry and there are 300 days of sunshine per year. Arequipa is a touristy city so the the nightlife is very active and lively.
